Energy use in buildings
Policy and Practice in the Built Environment
Worldwide, buildings account for up to 50% of climate change impact.
Caleb considers the implementation of ‘passive solutions’, such as highest quality building fabric energy efficiency retrofits, to be one of the most important steps that can be taken to reduce the impact of climate change.
Caleb has a high degree of experience and understanding of the potential climate, energy security and employment benefits of large-scale building refurbishment efforts. Caleb frequently advises governments, government agencies and other public and private organisations on the necessary policy and practical measures.
Caleb conducts high quality research and provides models on the costs & benefits of interventions to support policies and strategies for climate change mitigation from a more energy efficient built environment.
Caleb has been actively involved in studying the drivers of market transformation, including business models and funding sources. Caleb can assist you with climate change mitigation programmes by offering:
• advanced research on mitigation options available from the built environment;
• the modelling of costs & benefits based on life-cycle impacts;
• the implementation of greenhouse gas inventories;
• advisory services on policy, strategy and practical aspects of climate change mitigation options arising from the built environment.
